"Dive" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
We're going down
We're going down
We're going down
To the kamikaze dive

Fishnet leatherette
Pussy Galore
Pseudo Sumo wrestler
On the door
Dangerous dances
The dragon's claw
K-Tel Oriental
The monkey's paw

You're a dead ringer
For Madame Butterfly
Snappy little fingers
Stitch my thigh
You're so necromantic
Venomous and vain
Mixing molotov cocktails
In the subterrain

We're going down to the kamikazi dive
Like insects in a Chinese lantern now
We're feeling so alive, what's showing?
We're going down to the kamikaze dive
Like manic moths in Chinese lanterns now
We're feeling so alive, what's showing?

    General CommentI think it's about clubbing also maybe. Lots of oriental references. Maybe kamikaze dive means self destructive behaviour. A dive is obviously a sleazy seedy club. Molotov cocktails? maybe code for drugs? yes I know what they really are. I love the insects in a chinese lantern bit. Whole song is very mysterious. love it. also like the monkeys paw bit.
